    Its rained here for 4 days straight. Ducks have been lovin it, especially coz their pasture is very low.
    Today I noticed they had made themselves a little pond in the corner of the yard, where there was a puddle

    Now please fast forward three hours

    I went to give them lunch, and they were still having a grand ole time splashing and drilling and rubbing mud all over themselves...
    So I sat and watched them for half an hour (as in completely mesmerized watching them), and then went back to the house. As I walked back, my eyes fell on a shovel.
    Youre already shaking your head, arent you?
    Well then you know what I did for the next half hour...

    They didnt want to go in at first, and I got bored waiting. So I picked Curly up and dropped him in

    Then of course, everyone followed

    Its about two feet deep, so even the big ducks can swim.

    Needless to say, they are still at it...

    Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

    Did I mention they are still swimming? They have kiddie pools too, by now they look the same as the pond water :D
    Nope. We may make them a permanent big pond at the lowest spot in the pasture later this summer.
